Could you? My rent is $750, cable/internet/phone is $140, and gas, power, and water are about $200 combined. So no I wouldn't be able to pay all mine with $1000. I haven't even accounted for insurance.

What about you?

my mortgage is $2000, and the rest of my bills total about $1000, not including food and gas

No. Our rent is $900.

That wouldn't even cover our mortgage, so no.

Just our mortgage. And lunch money for the kids or something. We try to live within our means.

Not a chance. Cable 140, car payment 320, student loan 140, cells 150, netflix 8, credit cards 200-300, insurance 120, sons food allowance for school 50, abc mouse 8, magazine subscriptions 20. Wouldn't happen. We live in military housing so luckily we never have to budget housing allowance. They deal with that.

I couldn't even come close to paying the mortgage on $1,000.

Yep. Rent is $475, phone/internet is $20 a month because my husband works for the company, gas is about $80 this time of year, power is about $30. W/S/T are paid, and we won't have to pay car insurance of any payments until the end of next month. That puts our bills at about $605 give or take, which would leave us with $395 for food and toiletries and paper products, etc. We could get by on that. We've had to do it in the past. Thankfully we make enough now to live comfortably.
